Beau woke when a raccoon touched him. Someone - or some thing - was tapping him on the nose.  He opened his eyes, and saw two beady black eyes staring back at him.

"I'm a raccoon, fella.  I live in these woods.  Thought you were gonna sleep for the whole summer or somethin'.  Wassa matter with ya?"
